Apple II+ ADTPro Scrambled Characters

I am using ADTPro (SERIAL via Super Serial Card) and notice the file-names on my DSK images are all scrambled looking on the Apple II+ side. Transfer works just fine, but the names of the files when listing the directory look all scrambled.

My Apple II+ has a language card installed, so does this mean I have the required 64k?

When I do a memory test as follows, I seem to get something less than what I would expect for a 64k machine.

]PRINT FRE(0)+65536
35207

How can I easily tell how much memory is on the machine?

Or is memory not the issue here?

Thanks,

David

I have seen that problem before also, but I think it has to do with the way it tries to translate the unusual characters in the file names. Point ADTPro to a folder with filenames that contain no spaces, and all lowercase characters, no symbols, etc. and see if it looks better?

Yes, that worked, thank you! Looks like Apple II+ (since it can only handle UPPER CASE) needs to have the ADTPro files listed in all UPPER CASE. Once I made the change on the PC, ADTPro shows the files properly on the Apple II+ side. Thanks!
